Chalk Talk Exhibit

What is reality? How do our realities differ from one another? Do we care to know the truth if there is a truth? Explore Photographs from the Zion-Benton Community traveling exhibit — inspired by documentary photographer Wing Young Huie, which grapples with social issues, race, class, gender, sexuality within the context of a diverse American society. Reception Friday, November 16, 6-8 p.m.

Join us for a Chalk Talk Workshop with Wing Young Huie Monday, November 19, 3:00 p.m. in the gallery.

Chalk Talk is a dynamic workshop where participants explore identity, diversity and reality through an activity used in Huie’s recent work, The University Avenue Project. Huie elicited responses from hundreds of people in intersectional contexts by asking a series of fascinating open-ended questions. The messages that you see on the chalkboards are the responses from the participants in each photograph.
